Assembly information

The workers of Rio Tala were incorporated into the fair trade program in 2010. However, in 2012, the farm requested suspension from fair trade inspection, due to financial issues that would likely result in their withdrawal from the industry. They still have some premiums to invest, so even though there is no a formal assembly anymore, some workers came up with different ideas.
